If you could change JUST 1 thing about your hair

what would it be? Just one thing! For me it would definitely be to have a thinnner head of hair. I have hair for 2, maybe 3 people and now that the weather is warming it feels like I am wearing a rug. I was thinking about things this morning and I really think the other issues I have with my hair would be tolerable, or nonexistent, if I just had less hair. How about you? What would you change??
3B: very thick, fine, easily weighed down by products

Current styling products:
Biolage Gelee or BRHG on top of
KCKT as a leave in or CK when humid
or just Joiwhip alone for moderate weather conditions

    Frizz. I have found ways to significantly reduce it, but it's still an issue. I have great curl formation, so if I didn't have frizz, I would never have to put anything in my hair!!! I don't think it's overdry or overconditioned, I think it just is. I just have naturally frizzy hair. I think a leave-in helps it (so maybe it is overly dry, but it doesn't feel dry).
    That's right, I said it! I wear scrunchies!!

    I am a sulfate washing, cone slabbing, curly lovin' s.o.b. The CG police haven't caught me yet.

    That deja-vu feeling I get sometimes.

    Oh wait, you said hair. Hmmmm, this time I think it would be color.

    I'd like it to grow back--overnight!--to the length it was yesterday before it got chopped.... :sad8:

    Other than that, I'd like it to all be more consistent in the curl (it's 3b+c+a) :p

    I would like thicker hair and more of it. So, perhaps you could arrange to give me some of yours?

    oh jillipoo! if only it were that easy!! I'd love to share some of this. My curl is pretty descent and consistent (3B) but with it being so thick and my being competely unable to find a stylist that can cut it to lay correctly I find it to be difficult. I've always wondered what it would be like to have my hair dry quicker and use products to put volume into it. I'm sure those with thinner hair would love this problem. Here's the thing, I'll never know otherwise! Well, I guess it could start thinning later in life but if my mother and grandmother are any indication then that is not at all likely.

    Probably would be less coarse..........I have the thickest hair ever, which I don't mind because I won't go bald, but if it were less coarse that would make me a happy camper. I see some girls on this site and they have beautiful shinny, smooth curls...........I would never, have that!

    getting rid of the random hairs that stick out in all directions from each curl. or at least figuring out what causes them and how to fix them. is it frizz? is it damage or breakage? is it the thinning shears a stylist used on me 6 months ago? I have no idea!
    2c who can't seem to find enough moisture! Trying to figure this out once and for all 7 years after going CG!

    I've got one section on the back, on the top layer that isn't like the rest. It's not as smooth, it's rough and fluffy. I'd have that match the rest of hair.
    Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.

    Wavies, say it w/ me....

    I want my hair to be consistent!!!! :laughing7:

    I want products to work for me for longer than a week, I want my waves to not "move" around my head, I don't want my curls to die halfway through the day and leave me w/ a fluffy, undefined mess!!

    Would it be nice to have wavier/curlier hair? Sure, but I would take consistently less-wavy hair over inconsistently curly hair ANY DAY.
